Error description

  • Possible ABENDS0C4 in EQA00GFV+000050E4, ABENDS0C4 in
    EQA30INT+0000062E or a loop after PTF UI47449 (APAR PI75494).
    
    This APAR corrects this problem and also includes all the
    features and service included in PTF UI47449 (APAR PI75494), as
    shown below.
    
    --- Features ---
    
    -Allow store of STARTSTOP msgs in STARTSTOPMSGDSN in CICS
     environment.
    
    -Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility: Implement
     DFSMSCE0 exit sharing.
    
    -Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility: Add LIST
     capability to IMS Transaction Isolation Facility batch
     interface.
    
    --- End Features ---
    
    --- Service ---
    
    -ABEND in EQA00OHC+'20D8'x when using Debug Tool for COBOL V5
     or V6 and TEST(NOSOURCE) with SET FREQUENCY ON in a preference
     file.
     (PI74365 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool Utility JCL Analyzer gets EQA3058E Symbolic name
     too long for long symbolic names and variables.
     (PI75129 at 13.1)
    
    -Possible ABENDS0C4 in EQA00EVH when running Debug Tool with LE
     parameter TEST(ERROR,,*,*), and no Terminal Interface Manager
     (TIM) session connected.
     (PI74537 at 13.1)
    
    -ABENDS0C4 in EQA00KBM+'10C2'x when debugging in remote debug
     session.
     (PI74572 at 13.1)
    
    -Short-on-storage (SOS) in CICS when debugging application with
     large EQALANGX file.
     (PI75071 at 13.1)
    
    -ABEND in EQA0SXUT+'5208'x with SET LIST BY SUBSCRIPT ON in
     remote debug session.
     (PI75101 at 13.1)
    
    -Memory view contains ???? when it should contain values.
     (PI75428 at 13.1)
    
    -Currently Debug Tool's exit EQAD3CXT will continue to allocate
     the EQAUOPTS DS even though no entry in the XREF table was
     found .
    
     + EQAU999I CROSS REFERENCE ENTRY NOT FOUND.  TRANSACTION ID
     IS:  TRANS9999
    
     The process should stop here so the following steps are not
     executed
    
     + EQAU999I PROFILE DATA SET NAME: JOHNS.DBGTOOL.EQAUOPTS
     + EQAU999E DATA SET ALLOCATION FAILED. DATA SET NAME IS:

     (PI76259 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool Coverage Utility annotated listing for assembler
     truncated because of misidentified MACRO/MEND statement.
     (PI76617 at 12.1)
    
    -The input field pDsnStat in panel EQAPMPSL for Debug Tool is
     too short causing the DATASET NAME to be truncated in the
     Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility.
     (PI77408 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool does not show all of multiple CSECTS if
     configuration file with multiple commands is used.
     (PI77399 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility uses delay debug
     option which conflicts with the EQAOPTS delay debug option.
     (PI80811 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool fails with ABENDS0C4 in EQA0SBPP+'1C3E' in remote
     debug session start up.
     (PI78394 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool program check at EQA00AEI+'9A6'x when run EQAWIVPB
     sample in remote debug mode.
     (PI78765 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool: SVC Screening ON - abend when multitasking is done
     via ATTACH.
     There are different scenarios which will be fixed with this
     APAR:
      Debug Tool: ABEND in IMS application when started with
      EQANMDBG.
      Debug Tool: ABENDS0C4 when returning from subtask.
     (PI78905 at 13.1)
    
    -Program Check at EQARCL4+'11497C'x when COBOL V5 or higher
     program uses user-defined Unicode Codepage.
     (PI79945 at 13.1)
    
    -Using the Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility, in
     some circumstances, the messages stay in the IMS input queue
     or input buffer after the debug session has been terminated.
     (PI80815 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool, with the IMS Transaction Isolation Facility, can
     still remain active after a stop of the IMS sub-region.
    
     The panel "IMS Transaction Isolation Facility" shows that the
     sub-region has been stopped. In the panel "SDSF active user"
     it can be observed that the sub-region is still
     present/running.
    
     This can happen, for example, when the user makes the "stop"
     of the IMS sub-region in the TSO interface while the process /
     program is stopped on a breakpoint in the Debug Perspective
     within the RDz interface.
    
     (PI80876 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility: Don't allow
     DEREGISTER if private MPR is still started.
